The purpose of this email is to announce that I'm once again teaching
a 32-bit Embedded Linux class based on the BeagleBoard [1]. I'm
teaching as open-source as I can and have have posted many of course
materials on eLinux.org [2].

I'm always open to ideas on what topics to include in the class and
suggestions for interesting course projects. For example I just
picked up a couple Kinects [3] and hope to have a couple of teams
doing interesting things with them.

I'm one of the students in the class and I'm really looking forward to
building up my embedded linux knowledge so I can help the BeagleBoard
project in the future.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for using elinux.org to host this material again.  If there's anything I can do as the elinux.org admin to help, please feel free to let me know.

Hi Guys,

I have been working with the kinect and beagleboard for a while now. Just got the xM going with the kinect. Since libfreenect is now included in angstrom, this is quite easy. Drop me a note if you are interested in making a GLES client for the kinect - http://whatnicklife.blogspot.com/2011/03/kinect-beagleboard-xm.html.

Cheers,

whatnick.

I am one of the students in the class. After learning the ropes, I look forward to seeing what type of visual, audio, or 3D processing the Beagle can handle.

Hey, Im yet another student in the class. I decided to take it after
working with a DaVinci DM365 Evaluation Module for my senior project.
I realized just how much I didn't know about this area, so it will be
nice to fill in those gaps somewhat.

I'm one of the students. My motivations for being in this class are
largely similar to Brian Hulette's (previous post), as I was working
on the same senior project with him.

Hi all-

I am also one of the students in the class. My main interest is learning more about the Beagle Board as a whole.

Hey everyone, I'm another student in the class; my name is William
Gerth and I'm a senior computer engineering major at Rose-Hulman. I'm
really interested in using the Beagle for audio/video processing, or
for augmented reality stuff like Project Jarvis. If I turn out to be
savvy enough, I may see about implementing Archos' software on the
Beagle via the Open AOS project.

Hello, I'm also in the Beagleboard class. Very much excited to expand
my knowledge about how linux runs on non-desktop environments and how
to customize it and run different devices from the Beagleboard.

I've added more material to my BeagleClass.  Check here [1] to see a list of topics I teach, with links to some 20 exercises. 

The first group shows how to read the gpio pins, use the PWM timers, and use I2C devices.  The next group shows how to use gdb and make on the Beagle.  The next group of exercises show how to use ALSA to do audio IO and V4L2 and the DSS for video IO.  Along the way c6run is used to run the audio through the DSP.

All these exercises are run completely on the BeagleBoard, no need for a host computer.

Let me know if you find these useful.  What other labs should be added?

Hi Prof. Yoder:

Thanks for your kindly sharing the course material ECE497,

I'm new to BeagleBoard XM and trying to implement some embedded system
experiments on it.

So I'm trying to follow every steps from the Labs[1].

But I got stuck on "Lab02 Installing the Angstrom Distribution
Old"[2],

Lots of compile error message occur while using bitbake to create
console-image.

I thought the problems are caused by different environment
configuration and some system detail.

And I was trying to figure out the resources on "Lab02 Installing the
Angstrom Distribution Old"[3]

But I don't have the permission to access the sftp in rose-hulman.edu.

Will it be possible for you to put the resources that needed in Lab02
on public?

Very appreciate for your kindness.



Best Regards,

Rick Chung

  I suggest you go through the topics here [1].  They are the most up to date and should be accessible to you.

I am Ziggy (Ziyi Zhang), also the student in this new session of class this quarter. It seems it's a fun but also challenging course, just looking forward to master the necessary skills and finally come up with something productive at the end.

I'm leading Occupy Beagle. :->

Actually, I'm requiring my class to post a reply so I know they have seen the group and will start using it.  At first they will be sponges, but later I hope they are contributing.
